It's no secret that I love dogs. Where Corgis come first in my heart (followed closely by Basenjis) I am always ready to support a worthy cause that has dogs at the center of its mission. My friend Lisa has a rescue Beagle, and she wants to raise awareness and money for the Cascade Beagle Rescue. So she found a rather unique way to do it. Here is the blurb from Cascade Beagle Rescue:
Follow Your Nose: A Hike for Cascade Beagle Rescue
Cascade Beagle Rescue (CBR) speaks beagle. Our mission is to take unwanted, neglected, abused, homeless beagles, and beagles at risk of euthanasia, and provide them with the emotional, medical, and behavioral support they need to be adopted into loving and permanent homes. As a 501c3 nonprofit, CBR is funded solely by contributions and donations. You can imagine then, how we jumped for joy when Lisa Goyne approached us about pairing her long distance hike on the Pacific Crest Trail with a fundraiser for Cascade Beagle Rescue. 450 miles 4 Beagles? That sounded fun!
A long distance hike has been a dream of Lisa’s for years, but as we all know, some dreams take awhile. After drawing on the inspiration of friends and family, and her own rescued beagle, Emmy, Lisa finally decided to go for it this summer. On July 28th, she will begin her trek at the California/Oregon border with the goal of reaching the Bridge of the Gods and Washington five weeks later with $20,000 raised for CBR.
Isn't that cool? Want to support Lisa? Go to her new BeagleNoses page to follow Lisa as she gears up to go on her journey. There's a link to Follow Your Nose on the right hand side where you can donate and help Lisa with her hike. Check back with BeagleNoses often for updates on this grand adventure!
